After updating all of their BlackBerry 10 SDK’s last week RIM has released a quick refresh to the BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK beta. With the help of some devs feedback they identified a sandboxing logic issue that was not working as documented and the blackberry.io.sandbox property could not be set. They have fixed this issue in this small refresh which you can pick up here.
Josep also pointed out to me that the latest BlackBerry 10 WebWorks APIs introduced this new BlackBerry.io API which has an interesting new property. It allows developers to query for the static readonly full path of the SD card folder on BlackBerry 10 devices. At first I thought this might be a layover from the BlackBerry 7 APIs but this one is specific only to BlackBerry 10. Then I thought it might be part of the HTML5 spec but this is separate from that LocalFileSystem API. That means that RIM specifically went out of their way to add an SDcard query for BlackBerry 10.
That makes me wonder if that means RIM is planning on adding an SD card slot to BlackBerry 10 smartphones… That would be a change after not supporting them in the PlayBook or BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha. What do you think?
